When it comes to deciding where to place your LCD mounts, it doesn't just depend on whether you want to pick the bedroom or the living room walls. You should also select which portion of a given wall you want to install the mount on as well as what your wall is made of, because that will determine what sort of installation tools you'll have to make use of for your LCD flat screen. Your  television wall mounts can either be attached to your wall via studs or via anchors. For walls with wooden beams, placing the mount on studs or metal frames is common, while for concrete walls, you need anchors to make sure your screws are able to stay put on the drilled holes in the wall.

 

LCD TV Wall Mount Installation Tips and Tricks

 

When installing your wall mount for your LCD TV, it's recommended that you don't depend on drywall alone. Studs exist for the sake of adding support to your wall mount. Even though LCD TVs are thinner and sleeker than cathode-ray tubes, they still need significant support for their weight or else the whole setup will easily fail and you might lose your LCD TV thanks to an unstable mount.

 

A stud finder is particularly useful when it comes to locating studs on your wall so that the place where you'll be attaching your mount to is as stable, tough, and solid as possible. Your mounting hardware should also penetrate deep into the stud, because shallow penetration is just asking for trouble. The idea here is to make your mount into a fixture; it shouldn't have moving or loose parts around the places where it's supposed to be anchored to the wall.

 

Concrete or brick walls are both easier and harder to deal with. They're easier because you won't have to look for studs in your drywall. It's harder because you still have to add anchors to your drilled holes as well as metal frames and toggle bolts thanks to the rigid nature of the material.
